View record at WorldCat. The function of the Minoan palaces. Proceedings of the Fourth International Symposium at the Swedish Institute in Athens, 10–16 June, 1984 Edited by Robin Hägg & Nanno Marinatos Fourty-seven papers on the functions of the palace, the most characteristic phenomenon of the Minoan Bronze Age civilization in Crete, read at an international conference in Athens; the papers are followed by transcripts of the discussion of the symposium. The papers are arranged in eight groups, discussing (1) background (Near Eastern and Egyptian economy), parallels (Mycenaean palaces) and methodology; (2) the emergence of the Cretan palaces; (3) the relations of the palace with town and territory; (4) recent archaeological finds; (5) the palaces as ceremonial and religious centres; (6) the palaces as centres of trade and manufacture; (7) the administrative systems of the Minoans and Mycenaeans; and (8) the function of the frescoes in the palace.

Distributed by Astrom Editions. View record at WorldCat. The Tyrant-Slayers of Kritios and Nesiotes. A critical study of the sources and restorations By Sture Brunnsåker Preface More than fifteen years have passed since this book first appeared. This edition is identical with that of 1955, except that I have been allowed to add a list of illustrations, indices, a list of corrigenda and a postscript with bibliographical addenda, dealing with the most important contributions to the discussion since 1955. Sture Brunnsåker, Uppsala, March 1971 Introduction (excerpt) Since , in 1859, Friedrichs created the basis for all further research by identifying the copies at Naples, much has been written about the statues of the Tyrant-Slayers. A variety of problems have been raised and discussed. Some have been solved, others are still under debate. Although a great number of articles and books have dealt with this monument, nobody has so far attempted to classify and examine the whole stock of evidence available to us. The main purpose of this work is to fill this gap. Since the original statues have not survived, we must base our study on the various categories of evidence, literary sources, marble copies, reproductions of the statues in…
